Kos

A couple of interesting Daily Kos pieces recently, including this very smart profile in Washington Monthly.

Also, in this Newsweek interview, Kos throws down a gauntlet: “Lieberman is going to get a primary challenger for his Senate seat next year if me and a lot of grass-roots groups have our way.”

My instinct is that the media hype still exaggerates the electoral power of Internet politics (though it is growing fast), and that Lieberman will win handily, though a primary a huge headache for an incumbent. In any case, it seems a good opportunity to count the votes Kos pulls.

NOTE: Kos had some problems with the Washington Monthly piece, catalogued here. I’m not sure which side of the blogger/journo divide I am on this one, but it does seem wise to be careful when writing about people who can write back.
